Description: Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described...
Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described as the perfect home for a caveman. Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering Karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals. Wildflowers are abundant around the precinct from September to November. Located 22km south of Margaret River.

Arriving early in the morning, enjoyed a solo experience in the cave. The speaking earphones provided great commentary along the way and with the lights fading in and out based on sensors, the overall experience was excellent. There ware plenty of amazing formations, although nothing as singularly extraordinary as in Lake Cave. As an overall experience, conducted on your own... More

We only had time for one cave and given the climbing and cycling we had done the day before and the morning of we decided the more accessible mammoth cave was the way to go. It was definitely impressive but not necessarily more accessible. There are 176 steps to go around and come back out of the caves. A few... More

Dear Sars R, Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your visit to Mammoth Cave. We're glad that you found the cave impressive. With regards to the accessibility of the cave, we find that about 90 percent of our visitors go all the way through the walkway loop and come back to the car park via the forest... More

The Mammoth Cave is a self guided tour where headphones are provided. The commentary is informative and people can go at their own rate to view the amazing cave. After viewing the cave and some of the ancient fossil remains take the longer walk back through the forest to the entrance.

Beautiful doesn't even come close to describing this cave! The climb back up was a bit of a trek for someone with bad knees (A LOT of stairs) but definitely well worth it!

Not too far away, we found that the Mammoth cave was very interesting. The audio self guided tour was very handy and overall the cave gave the impression of being very natural and not overly enhanced. Quite a large cave with lots of different features the stairs and viewing platform were very safe and sturdy, additional lighting may have helped... More

This cave was vast and you were able to take your time wandering around with the audio guide telling you more about the caves and area.

Unlike the Jewel Cave the Mammoth Cave allows the tourist a self guided tour with no time constraints. There are manageable paths and about 200 steps but be warned there are a few areas requiring a taller person to "duck" at times within the cave complex. The cave structures are impressive and make for great photos. After walking through the... More
